His rambunctious filmography remains an artistic force on par with Hollywoods greatest comic directors: Lubitsch, Sturges, Wilder.

Like Wilder, Edwardss propensity for hilarity is double-helixed with pain, and in films like Breakfast at Tiffanys, Days of Wine and Roses, and even The Pink Panther, we can hear him off-screen, laughing in the dark. And yet, despite those enormous successes, he was at one time considered a Hollywood villain. After his marriage to Julie Andrews, Edwardss Darling Lili nearly sunk the both of them and brought Paramount Studios to its knees. Almost overnight, Blake became an industry pariah, which ironically fortified his sense of satire, as he simultaneously fought the Hollywood tide and rode it.

Employing keen visual analysis, meticulous research, and troves of interviews and production files, Sam Wasson delivers the first complete account of one of the maddest figures Hollywood has ever known.
